Holiday Travel Hijacking Averted - No Snowglobes On Board!


I feel so much better now my holiday flight will be snow-free inside the plane.

Yeah, well, a huge percentage of our holiday sales at my place of work depends on people buying snowglobes, and we have to remind them of this fact if they mention they are flying. Fortunately the boxes are so big that it’s unlikely they will fit in a carry-on. For a few years there we did a brisk business replacing pocketknives people had lost to the screeners.

Think how much nitroglycerin thy could have in one. The first air turbulence and the plane is coming down in little flakes on our heads.
